The 4A Division II title game will feature plenty of offensive firepower when Lexington meets Northwestern on Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.
Lexington hit an 18 yard field goal with 3 seconds left in their semi-final matchup with defending state champion Spartanburg to beat the Vikings, 38-35, to advance. Northwestern held off Nation Ford 30-22 in the semis to claim a shot at their 5th state title this weekend.
Wednesday evening we were joined by the respective head coaches to discuss their journeys thus far in the playoffs and look ahead to Saturday’s action.
Coach Stepp discussed last weeks heroics by his kicker, and intimated to a degree what it will take this weekend to slow down coach Richardson’s high-octane offense from the upstate.
Coach Richardson’s squad will have to defend quite the offensive attack in his own right. He discussed that with us tonight as well, and more.
The Wildcats and Trojans will kick things off Saturday at 6:00 in Columbia.
